My memories of uncle Toy would take a lifetime to explain, but those who knew him, know that he did live life to the fullest. My dads death took a little part of his heart when he died. I know growing up, him and my dad were close. Well after 50 years you two will be back together again. love ya uncle Toy

My dear sweet Uncle Toy, always there with a huge bear hug. I believe I was his favorite niece. Loved him dearly and I know my Mom will welcome him with open arms.
